Q: Santa is going to be bringing my girls (3-year-old twins) a dollhouse this Christmas, probably this one (pictured). I'm looking for some dollhouse people to go with it, and I can't find any I like. There doesn't seem to be much variety out there. I've found a few different versions of the wire/wood dolls with yarn hair, but I don't think they'll hold my kids' interest beyond toddlerhood, and I'm hoping this dollhouse will grow with them. The realistic looking people (like the ones they have at their preschool) aren't poseable. I've found a couple of handmade Waldorf sets, but they're very expensive. I've also thought about going with animals instead a la Calico Critters. I'm wondering if other people have suggestions for great dollhouse families.

Editor: My sisters and I had a dollhouse growing up and for the life of me I can't remember what the occupants looked like! Readers, can you suggest some good dollhouse people for Tara to check out for her girls?
